Billionaire Elon Musk-led Twitter has removed the blue ticks of verified users from its platform. Twitter has said that they have removed blue ticks from the accounts of only those people who did not buy the blue plan. As previously stated by the CEOs of SpaceX and Tesla, from April 20, 2023, all accounts that have not subscribed to Twitter Blue will have their blue badges removed.

Although it is not yet confirmed whether all the legacy Twitter verified accounts have lost their blue tick or not, but it is certain that Twitter has definitely started the process of removing the verified badge. People who have subscribed to Twitter Blue subscription have been sent a message – “This account is verified because you have subscribed to Twitter Blue and verified your phone number.”
